Welcome summer - love those hot days! Our children's summer reading program is going strong. If your kids have not yet signed up, please help them do so today for fun activities and weekly drawings of fun prizes.
Several people have commented about a seemingly lack of books in the fiction area. As the director, I need to make sure there are sufficient materials purchased in all areas. New books come in every week, and much of it is fiction, but the bestsellers do not stay in the library. There is generally a long list of requests for these titles, so don't expect to see them on the bookshelf. A change has also been made in the way books are displayed on the front bookshelves. Instead of two years, only the current year of new books are displayed. Going forward, we will post a list of books ordered, along with the bestsellers, so that you can see what is available and place your requests. Suggestions for book title purchases are always welcome.
